About: African American landscape painter Robert Duncanson found great success in the Midwest before the Civil War. The War drove him out of the country, to Canada and Britain, where he exhibited his paintings and made sketches for new work. This painting is inspired by his trip to Scotland and his reading of the poems of Sir Walter Scott.
